WE ARE 26 YEARS OLD.
Boutique Batik was started in 1991 by Calum Burn. We began by extending our managers house in a village near Yogyakarta in central Java. After about two years we then moved into our own small factory, which was the first of about six locations throughout the years.
We always use colour fast cotton and rayon cloth in the Herhea factory. From this we create our own designs including dresses, skirts, trousers and blouses. We have supplied about 200 shops in the UK as well as having our own retail outlets at various outdoor events in Britain.
Around six years ago we moved our base to northern Thailand in order to expand our product lines to include cotton and silk blouses, cotton casual bags and hats. Currently we are researching materials in Myanmar. Calum will be outside the UK until May 2018.
